The SAFE Port Act of 2006 designated the Coast Guard as the lead federal agency tasked with building Interagency Operations Centers in critical U.S. ports. A critical component of the IOC initiative is an Information Management System (IMS) to provide improved means for information sharing, and coordination among federal, state, local, and public sector stakeholders related to maritime safety and security in critical U.S. ports. The Coast Guard WatchKeeper project is a proposed IMS being designed to address the information sharing and information management challenges faced by these agencies. The WatchKeeper development program has faced challenges in delivering capability. Initial capability was to be delivered in 2009. This did not happen. Up to today, WatchKeeper has not delivered any new capabilities. Several development practices may provide advantages to the development process-ensuring value adding capabilities, minimizing project risk, and ensuring Coast Guard leadership can understand how WatchKeeper capabilities support Coast Guard core business process. This thesis describes these development practices, and proposes an architectural consideration to provide focus to future WatchKeeper products. This thesis concludes with considerations for further developing WatchKeeper, and recommendations for moving forward with development.
